Our Spring Mini Observership will be "Miracle on South Division Street" by Tom Dudzick, who you may remember as the author of the Hipp hits "Over the Tavern" and "King of the Moon." In this heartfelt and hilarious comedy, the Nowak’s family legend starts to unravel following a deathbed confession, and the family struggles through laughter to find their new identity.
Every family has its secrets. Most don’t build a shrine to them in front of their house. In “Miracle on South Division Street,” hilarity ensues as an age-old family myth crashes headlong into reality.
The NY Times says “Another winner... Give in to Miracle on South Division Street. You'll be glad you did.”
